LEESBURG, Va. — The Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC) is calling for submissions for its 2017 National Excellence in Training Awards, which recognize effective or innovative training programs for the automotive and truck service sectors.
The awards, to be presented Nov. 1 at an ATMC reception in Las Vegas during "Industry Week," recognize the importance of training to the success of the industry.
Three awards will be given, the ATMC said, including an overall Grand Award, to programs that meet or exceed a prescribed level of excellence.
An ATMC panel will judge all submissions based on several criteria, including:
- Program overview;
- Needs analysis;
- Learning objectives;
- Program elements/materials;
- Delivery methods;
- Measurement of intended outcome; and
- Program sustainment/maintenance.
The application process is free to all ATMC members. Non-members pay a $150 application fee.
The deadline for submissions is Sept. 1. The awards reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at The Venetian in Las Vegas.
Last year's winners were business services provider KPA L.L.C., the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium and NAPA Auto Parts.
Leesburg-based ATMC is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of training and professional development within the transportation service industry.
